You got a shorted circuit, check wiring for that circuit. Usually that info isn't given out. You may need an Haynes Manual to look up the wiring schmatics and find out what is hooked up into that 30A fuse.

check all your grounds could have one loose thats causing you to be short out. check all of your engine grounds which fuse is it for sure? find a manual like was previously stated to track down the problem for sure your going to have to check every connection thats connected to that fuse.
